On Aug. 3, 2019, local non-profit MOM of Columbia County is hosting the annual Global Big Latch On event during World Breastfeeding Week. As a worldwide peer support and community development event, it aims to strengthen national and global support for breastfeeding and to improve the health of children and women around the world.

Join other local mothers as we gather together to breastfeed, see old friends, make new ones, and offer peer support to each

other. Friends, family and community are welcome to join this fun celebration to promote and support breastfeeding.
